B.C.S. BULLETIN TO OLD BOYS ON ACTIVE SERVICE May 194 3 There has been rather a long gap between the last Bulletin and this, during which efforts have been made to correlate all available information about Old Boys on Active Service and so widen our mailing list and correct our records. The list resulting from this research seems fairly complete and accurate in respect to names, but conspicuously lacking in addresses. There are about 380 Old Boys on Active Service; 13 are prisoners of war; 4 are listed as missing; 11 have been killed. Old Boys Killed on Active Service Alexander, J.O. F/O, RCAF Auld, G.
